Paprika

10:45 pm on Friday 9th July 2021

The Bedouin


Paprika is no misnomer. This fiery Balkan band in fact surpasses itself in doing exactly what it says on the tin. Rapid-fire melodies swoop in from Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, delivered by the lightning fingers of musicians born and bred into each of their unique traditions.

Since their humble beginnings in 2009, Paprika is still certainly more than capable of working the audience into a frenzy, with melodies darting in one direction before somersaulting and catapulting down a completely different and dangerous path. They are also focusing on bringing rare and lost traditional Balkan music back to life, arranging them into their line-up of violin, two accordions, guitar, bass and percussion.

The band have performed all over the world including the prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House. Their sophomore album was released in November 2019.
